participating in another photo challenge. Each month we will post a different architectural feature and this month the subject was doors. I spent the month mostly on the couch so didn't get out to any of the wonderful old homes to catch a picture of their front doors. Since I didn't want to bow out completely, I have included my front door.........where the welcome mat is well worn with the passing of many loved ones' feet! You would be welcome here, too!
I pledge to have many more entries for February's feature; I am starting to feel like my normal energetic self again!

I accomplished 278 yards of Romeldale. This fiber is a cross of Romney and Rambouillet and a very soft, cushy yarn results! Another first fiber for me and it was a great spun - I give it a four star rating!

Our sandhill crane couple come up to the house every morning to ask for corn and lately the male has been banging on the sliding glass door -it is very loud banging, make you jump in your chair banging! He is competing with his reflection-getting all bothered about a problem that is just in his head. I think it is a good lesson for us to make sure that the things that we might rail against all day is really an adversary and not just a reflection of one!

The ocean reflected the morning storm. It was beautiful for us right after lunch and we had a wonderful beach hour.
Ella plops down and plays with the sand-she is content.
We are taking this with us for a knitting project in the car while we drive up to visit grand babies!

I used this to do the needle felting-much faster than trying it by hand! I used the Accuquilt Go! cutter to easily cut out the snow flakes........yup, I say it often, having the right tools makes a job much easier!
